In the fall, winter and spring a group of first and second grade students gather together after school to participate in Bancroft Elementary School’s Jump Rope Club. This club promotes physical activity, cooperation, and FUN! The fall session was a huge success with students learning the basics of how to jump rope as well as more complex skills and tricks. Each week the students learned something new such as partner jumping, group jumping, and using a Chinese jump rope. There was so much interest in Jump Rope Club this year the winter session is already filled with students who were not able to participate in the fall. First grade teacher Mrs. Stacey Hoernig looks forward to teaching new group of students the ins and outs of jumping rope!
